IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
April 25 (legislative day, APRIL 18), 1990
Received; and placed on the calendar
CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
Expressing the sense of the Congress concerning Jerusalem and the peace
process.
Whereas the State of Israel has declared Jerusalem to be its capital;
Whereas from 1948 to 1967 Jerusalem was a divided city and Israeli citizens
of all faiths were not permitted access to holy sites in the area controlled
by Jordan;
Whereas since 1967 Jerusalem has been a united city administered by Israel
and persons of all religious faiths have been guaranteed full access to holy
sites within the city;
Whereas the President and the Secretary of State have demonstrated their
strong desire to achieve a just and lasting peace in the Middle East and
have worked diligently toward that end;
Whereas ambiguous statements by the Government of the United States concerning
the right of Jews to live in all parts of Jerusalem raise concerns in Israel
that Jerusalem might one day be redivided and access to religious sites in
Jerusalem denied to Israeli citizens; and
Whereas such concerns inhibit and complicate the search for a lasting peace
in the region: Now, therefore, be it
  Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That
  the Congress--
  (1) acknowledges that Jerusalem is and should remain the capital of the
  State of Israel;
  (2) strongly believes that Jerusalem must remain an undivided city in
  which the rights of every ethnic religious group are protected; and
  (3) calls upon all parties involved in the search for peace to maintain
  their strong efforts to bring about negotiations between Israel and
  Palestinian representatives.
Passed the House of Representatives April 24, 1990.
Attest:
DONNALD K. ANDERSON,
Clerk.
